    Nice write up. I rode about 2 hours at Percy Warner Trails. May hit them up again today or do a pavement ride somewhere after work. Don't ride your daughter in the ground today.

    We have goats. I am not milking them right now, but I will back up the theme that Goat's Milk is better for the body! Raw of course! One of my websites Working Goats - Front Page

    More and more, with riding the bicycle, I have noticed my health getting better....AND I AM DOWN A PANTS SIZE! It occurred to me yesterday that my wrists are not bothering me any more. They do not give out when stressed. They are not hurting at all. Funny, when the pain goes away, a person forgets. My wrists have not bothered me in a while now.....I just did not think about it. <simles>

    The trees are starting to change

    Today was splendid! Mild temps and beautiful skies. I went to the Forest City trails and spent 3 hours just enjoying myself. I was surprised by the new loop we rode. It's the same trails just going from a different direction. lol
    My daughter rode her trek and when we hit some rooty sections began to realize just how nice it will be to get her fat bike. Hopefully she will get one on the first, or at least order it.
    i am in the process of getting more greens in my system. I seem to be a little low in the iron department, time to order up lots of green beans and spinach.
    I am getting some winter riding gear assembled. Wool Jersey and wool cap to go under the helmet, gloves and sweat pant over tights. plus some sort of winter cycling shoes. I already have snow mobile boots when the snow gets deep, Does anybody from way up north have any suggestions? Also I was wondering if there is any consensus about whyat tires to upgrade for the Gravity Bullseye Monster?They come Veerubber Missions. 4,0. Maybe go to the Veerubber *'s?:

    Glad you had a good ride. I rode my SS on the trails today at a brisk pace, for me. It was chiller than yesterday. Lots of leaves on some of the trails making them a little skatey feeling. Brown Ice. Was replacing rear brake pads on my Ventana and stripped the brake bolt so I cannot center it. Will have to take it to the shop to have it removed.

    A good workout for us.

    Went to the Forest City Trails yesterday abs rode several laps with my daughter and Tom. I noticed that the colors on the trees are waning and by the weekend they should all be down or brown. My health continues to improve. And my weight is holding st 255. My daughter's bike should be here next week. Then our ride on the Berryman will go ahead for Nov. 8th. I am buying a frame bag for this ride and we are getting hydration packs too. today's ride will br a normal workout PEACE

    Good To Hear The Oldbear, that your health is continuing to get better. I have said before and will say again and again, My Health is Better from getting out and riding bikes, and I am so much stronger with more balance.

    Last night my new Gravity Fatty Monster arrived from bikesdirect. It is put together but it is still dark out right now. <grins> This bike is built well and even has the "anything bag holes". I LOVE THAT!

    What bicycle is your daughter getting from where? Is she getting a BikesDirect bicycle? I am thinking about another from there, seeing the quality of this bicycle.

    We too want to start BikePacking again. I have patterns cut out for the Handlebar Slings as well as the Stuff Sacks for it. I am going to make our Frame Bags very soon.

    Does your wife sew at all? Frame Bags look pretty simple to make. If not, and you are looking to spend less that the over $100 per Frame Bag, check out ebay. I saw a few there.

    I have a Camelback with a few small pockets that I LOVE! YES! I sure would recommend them. I added a couple of pieces of webbing to the bottom belt so that my pistol does not slip around on it. I wear it every time I go out on my bicycle.

    My weight is down another pound and I am very happy about it too!

    Have a good day and a good ride today!

    Oh here it is! The answer to what bicycle your daughter will be getting. <smiles> As far as updating the tires on the Graivity Monster? Mine look great right out of the box. I don't think I will upgrade them and I am planning to ride on snow and I ride on the Prairie (betonite, also called Gumbo Soil, it is the stuff they make the clumpy kitty litter out of, I call it Dinosaur Poop, awful stuff!)

    Winter Gear? Ha3 Yesterday I found out, it was cold here when I left for my ride, that I should leave COLD. I did not think I did, but I had too much on. I did wear a bandana over my face (think Train Robber) for a scarf. It is too warm yet for the Bright Yellow Balaclava, Velcro Scarf and Head Band I made with thick fleece doubled.

    Scarves are necessary, you don't want the cold air in your lungs as you work pedaling. People die every year for that reason shoveling snow. But you do not want your scarf dangling either. I cut my fleece scarf to size then added Velcro for the full length/that is the full width, to close it. I had made these for horse back riding too. The work great.

    Use BRIGHT Colors. People driving will be snow blind or have coats and such around them in their vehicles. Stay as visible as you possibly can.

    We are a two monster family!

    Marna: My daughter got her Monster yesterday morning. So she rode it yesterday afternoon. so we are now a two monster family!She loves that bike and placed her Trek 4500wsd in storage. \I putogether my winter kit and I am awaiting the arrival of my Surlly wool cycling cap. I rode with an old beenie yesterday and I got too hot. As far as hydration goes, we both have Camelback Mules and carry two waterbottles on l;onger rides to stay hydrated. I applaud your weight loss and fitness report. I can tell you now how important it is to stay active in middle age and early senior citizen hood. Thirty years ago when Sue nd I got married I weighed in at 190lbs, and in the space of twenty five years I went from a 38" waist to a 58" waistand blossomed to 327lbs. I am down to 254 lbs and feel great now thanks to a sensible diet and cycling. so keep up the good work

    VERY KOOOOL for your daughter! I snuck out this morning for a very short ride on my new Gravity! I seem to LOVE it! We have company coming so only a short ride for right now.

    <sighs> Yeah. Me too. (on the weight gain as I age) I am sure it is true for everyone. I tell people, especially women getting into their 30's, how important it is to stay and or get active! And I knew it too, when I got fat again, this time, but it is so much easier to sit and watch TV and eat. Ha3

    Did a solo ride today. Rode around the city on the Acorn trail and then hit the Lion's club. Had a nice time sight seeing and not being all that concerned with speed, cadence or pulse rate. I just enjoyed the last of the colors. I am anxious for the eight. I want to do the Berryman sooo bad Going to order some Huskerdu;s next month. saving up for them . It's so strange to ride by myself. I just take my time and go slow except for the downhills on pavement on the way to the trails. I love how my daughter is lookingh forward to riding the trails with me. my other sons don't have the time to get down here to ride and I really wish they did.

    Now to wax nostalgic. Gentle readers: how many of you have ever enjoyed a Moab sunset? My family and I would travel down to Moab once a month in the spring and early summer once a month. WEe would camp on BLM lands above the Slickrock called the Sandflats.. (THIS WAS BEFORE PAID CAMPING) At Sunset we all would climb the rocks overlooking the Slickrock. There we would watch the sunset as it would drop in stages of color into the horizon. he colors of orange, pink, rose, dark red an deep purple as it slipped out of sight. Then the stars would appear and fill the night with their light. On Moonlit nights we would ride the Practice loop of the Slickrock or ride out under the moonlight on the Sandflats rode to the east. As the Kids would settle in around our campfire and listen to Reggae music or alternative rock on the local NPR station. Life was good and we slept sound.

    Until tomorrow. peace. The Oldbear

    I did 17 miles at my local trail on my Single Speed. My Fatboy Superlight is backordered until the end of November. Who cares? I waited 6 months for my SS Ti frame and that bike will never be sold. I may rent a fat bike for this Sunday from my bike shop. Will see if they want someone to ride it for 4 to 6 hours. Keep having fun. Leaves were down big time today and the trail was a little slick in spots. Cut my speed back due to the conditions but it was more of a workout than when it is bone dry. May do a road ride tomorrow if it rains here. Keep the posts coming because I like reading positive stuff.

    the temp is 43 with a windchill of 37 here this after noon. So I think I'll use today as a rest day. walked to the store and got chilled. When I left it was 45 without the wind chill by the time I arrived back home the temp dropped to 39 with a bad NW wind. I will ride tomorrow in the afternoon. It's supposed to be in the 60's.

    Okay, it is time to suck it up and get the winter stuff out. I already have. Did 26 miles on the pavement tonight because my local trail was too wet and slick. Leaves all over the place in the two parks I rode through. Gotta have my fix for the day. Rode my SS geared for the road with 38 mm semi-slicks. I run a 32x14 on it. It was great and I am glad I have nice gear so I cannot just bemoan the weather. No such thing as bad weather, only bad gear. Have a great ride tomorrow. Saturday is my off day and Sunday is gonna be a cold trail ride.

    I'm sorry....I lied.

    i lied. I rode for an hour this afternoon with the daughter. temp hit 45 and I bundled up and hit the trail. I am just waiting for my wool cycling cap from my local bike shop. I wore a skaters beanie under my helmet. and my daughter wore a St. Louis cards beanie under hers. luckily for me I have heavy gloves and long johns to go under my wind breaker pants. tomorrow is going to be a lot like today and we will ride the pavement. my weight is still at 252 and I felt great after the ride, except , for my nose.
    That's all folks! PEACE Oldbear

    Okay, where is everybody on this, used to be, good thread. Cold weather driving you inside and into a funk? Not me. I have ridden every day this week and it has been great with one rainy road ride. Got news my new fat bike has been shipped.

    Well. I was down to my 11-4-2014 weight goal. But have bounced back up.....normal I know. Aggravating all the same!

    I have been riding my bicycles every day. I have more miles on this week than normal. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I rode my FATTY. Then my back started screaming so I am back on the Genesis.

    We shoveled a LOT of goat manure on Saturday. Sunday we rode twice the normal miles, Monday and Tuesday I pushed for just over one more mile per ride. The Gravity sits different than my Genesis Mt. Bike. I am more stretched out over the bike on the FATTY. Not a bad thing. Just something is old back needs to get used too.

    When my back stops hurting, I will start riding the FATTY every other or every third day or so.

    I really hate it too. I am pretty sure that the FATTY will be the bike I always ride, no matter what the terrain. <smiles> But it will take a bit to work up to that.

    I am headed out in a minute for a longer ride again today.

    Sad to hear that. I wish you a speedy recovery oldbear ... strokes are such nasty things, lost a parent to one. Anyway, just follow your therapy religiously and you'll get better... never ever loose hope.

    Keep on riding,
    cheers!

    6 weeks on the sidelines is rough. Hang in there, I'm sure you will ride again! Having grown up by NYC Chinatown, I would consider tai chi if its available, in addition to your other exercise. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/04/sc...dent.html?_r=0

    Thanks for all the encouragement and concern. I went for a walk around the block this afternoon using a cane. I am supposed to use a walker but I felt funny after Most of neighbors had seen me riding a bike. A few stopped me to ask how I was doing and told them better. Besides walkers are for old people. LOL. \
    My daughter just returned with our friend Tom from riding the Berryman Trail. She brought back quite a few pictures and had a great time. I am sooooooo jealous! Her bike preformed very well and she didn't complain in the least. When she started the temps were in the low 40's and by the time she got back it only got up to the mid 50's. I am hoping to ride the Berryman in April or May. I will have my Gravity Bullseye pro by then.
    During the walk I only had to stop twice to catch my breath. I really feel better.
    robertdaivid: great to hear about your Fatboy. post a picture of it when you get it.
    Marna: You will get used to your fatty. It took me no time to get used to mine but things were reversed. My Trek Marlin ss stretched me our more than does my Monster. plus on the Fatty my butt doesn't get sore as well. Remember your muscles memories have to be reset as well.
    And remember to put tons of that goat manure into your garden soil to decompose over the winter. ( that's just the farmer in me talking.)
    And so this brings me to the end of my post. I hope everybody has a wonderful Veterans day and to those of you who served our country,
    Thanks for your service.
    Peace
    Fred

    An Excellent Day!

    Hello all! I went to the hospital for rehab today and worked out for an hour and then rode the stationary bike. The therapist set it for a road ride with moderate hills. I rode for a half hour and all my vitals stayed within allowable range. i told them that before the stroke, I was riding my fat bike six days a week. They said that was why I am recovering so quickly and then they said that they expect a shorter recovery time of four weeks!

    Thats why I've always thought buying things that keep you active is such a good investment. By being conditioned from riding will likely make your recovery much faster and you may have been worse off if you weren't biking.

    My Weight is back down (YAAAAY!). I have my fat bike already to go. We have snow. Guess What!? I have three teeth bothering me (to the point of almost tears) So I have not been out to ride in the snow yet. But did you catch that I lost more weight!? <winks>

    Marna: I am glad that you too are losing weight. We are expecting snow this week too. But I won't be able to ride in it. Today is my rest day. I spent the day working on my aquariums. I have guppies and angelfish. I also watched 'We were soldiers ' on AMC. The temperature here is 32.7

    Hi everyone! Had another excellent day at rehab. Worked out with light weights and did the therapy thing for 45 minutes and then rode the stationary bike for 45 minutes. I am now able to walk without a cane or walker and my left side is much stronger. I talked with my doctor today and he said by the week of Christmas I should be able to ride my bike. (weather permitting). I was told not to ride at temps below 25f and to avoid riding at temps above 95f. I am so excited. I want to break in my new tires and back out there. my weight went back up bit to 260 but I will lose it when I start riding again. got my winter gear in order and I am ready to go.
    We are expecting snow Sat. and Sun. So my daughter and Tom are planning to ride the Forest City trails in St. james in the snow. Lucky dogs.
    Well everyone enjoy their coming weekend. Especially those in the northwoods or Wisconsin and Mimmesota.

    Like to hear good news. Thanks for keeping me/us up to date. I know you are working your tail off in therapy.

    Had a maiden voyage on my new Fatboy SL. Bike handles and fits me perfect. Here is a picture of what this bike looks like. http://fcdn.mtbr.com/attachments/fat...fatboy-sl-.jpg

    Not mine but I am not good at this transferring pics. Only change I made was tubeless set up, Ergon grips, and Candy pedals.

    Hi everbody. Just got back from Rehab. Another real good day I was on a weight machine doing leg lifts and found that my leg strength is almost as good as it was when I was in college almost thirty years ago. I can, with both legs lift almost three hundred pounds! The aide said he was amazed in the definition in my calves. of course my right leg is stronger but that's to be expected. I rode the stationary bike for 45 minutes without a problem. It's going to snow tomorrow and Sunday and my fat bike isn't going to taste the snow. Just can't wait until December!
    Robertdavid: Congrats on your new bike. remember to keep the rubberside down1

    Until next time, PEACE. Fred aka the oldbear
